Tiara Melaka Golf & Country Club is owned and operated by Hyline Berhad, the property and community development branch of the Lion Group, one of Malaysia’s largest corporations, and the 27-hole golf complex is located in the popular Ayer Keroh tourist area, some 90 minutes by road from Kuala Lumpur.

The facility was constructed on an old rubber plantation and former mine with holes laid out in the lower portions of the site to take advantage of some remnant lakes left over from tin mining operations. Many of the mature trees were also left untouched and a number of these were cleverly incorporated into the design as hazards.

The Lake nine at Tiara Melaka was the first to open in 1994 followed a year later by the Meadow loop with the Woodland circuit unveiled a short time after. The estate spans around 400 acres and around a quarter of this area is reserved for housing units, which, thankfully, never intrude on fairway activities here.

As its name suggests, the Lake nine features plenty of water hazards, particularly on the final three holes which present intimidating carries from the tee. And just when you think you might have seen enough water on the outward half of your round, there’s more to be faced on the Meadow nine, where the final two holes are played on either side of a large lake.

I played golf for the first time in 15 years here. As a returning golfer, lured to playing by a mate I couldn't wait to get stuck in. It was a boys weekend in Melaka and I was really impressed by Tiara. The clubhouse and facilities are a bit tired - a sign that it was probably a decent spot a decade ago, but we rocked up for a 9am tee time and had a decent breakfast. The service is great and the old caddies very friendly. The courses are excellent. We played Woodland and Lake. Both are really tough - as with lots of Malaysian courses there's loads of water to contend with and jungle lining the fairways. As the reviewer below says, the 9th on Lake is ridiculously hard for the average golfer with a lake running the entire length of fairway from tee to green. There are some superbly laid out holes and I especially enjoyed the par 3s. The turf is springy and well maintained and greens true and quick. All round a decent place to play golf.

Tiara Melaka Golf & Country Club was a treat in itself. We were invited to play in the 2011 Grand Finals for the World Amateur Inter-Team Golf Championship where 576 Tiara Melaka Golf Course - Photo by revieweramateur golfers from nine countries played in six qualifying events across Malaysia to reach these finals. This 27-hole layout features the Lake, Meadow and Woodlands nine. These are all tough courses when you are forced to played from the blue tees but dastardly if you venture off from tips on the Meadow and Woodland courses where the slope is 142 and the course rating is 74.4. Recently the 9th hole on the Lake Course was voted hardest golf hole in Malaysia however the combination of 8 and 9 are the toughest that I have ever played. This is also where we saw a multitude of monkeys that will surely make your trip a true adventure. Green fees for 18 holes range from around $30USD up to $50 plus $12.50 per person for a cart and around $11 per cart for a caddy. What a steal!
